Across the country Small Business Saturday is celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving as a way to encourage support of small, local businesses. In 2010 American Express launched Small Business Saturday, and in 2011 it became a day officially recognized by the US Senate. By 2013 more than 1,450 Neighborhood Champions signed up to rally their communities, and last year shoppers supported their neighborhood businesses like never before with more than $14.3 billion spent at small, independent businesses – in just one day.
This year Small Business Saturday happens on November 24, 2018 and Greater Spokane Incorporated (GSI) has volunteered to be one of Spokane's Neighborhood Champions. Let’s make this the biggest day of the year for small businesses!
Sign up to participate and promote your small business by visiting the American Express Small Business Saturday website and pick up some fun free swag at the GSI offices. If you have any questions, please contact our Events team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
